Razor E200 Electric Scooter Review
Are you looking for a safe yet fun electric scooter for your young kid? The E200 range of electric scooters from Razor is the smart buy for you. This model of Razor electric scooters is for kids above 13 years of age. It is very popular with kids because of scooter’s medium size packed with great speed. This product shall cater to your needs of price, performance, and safety.
E200 weighs 40 pounds, which is relatively lighter than other scooters in its category. It’s the perfect ride for kids making transport easy and smoother acceleration. The tires are 8-inch pneumatic tires, which have closer grip than urethane and can carry a heavier load than its previous models E100-E175. It can carry the weight of up to 69 kg (152lbs). The pneumatic tires make it a non-multi-terrain scooter.
E200 has hand operated rear brakes much like its succeeding model E300. It makes the response time that much easier and is preferable on electric scooters for kids. It is safer than older front brakes or foot operated brakes. The handlebar is custom made for kids shorter than 5’6”, which means that kids taller than this might not be comfortable with riding theE200 Electric Scooter.
E200 doesn’t need ‘push start’ and can be started with a speed throttle with which you can also alter speed. It reaches it maximum speed i.e., 12mph in a few seconds. The speed is not excessive but adequate to feel the adrenaline rush. It is the appropriate speed for kids of this age group. If you have ever ridden on a Razor E100 or E150 electric scooters, then you probably are aware that the throttles are either full speed or nothing.
This can be very unsafe, especially if your little one hasn’t had any experience of riding an electric scooter before. But the E200 throttle is a game-changer, which allows variable speed- slow, intermediate and fast speeds. Easier Control=More safety & More Fun!
It reaches its top speed of 12mph (19kph) with the Razor’s range of fast electric scooters quickly. It’s not quite a powerhouse as the E300, but it performs better than its previous model E100 by an enormous margin while still maintaining the most secure top-speed for young kids. The scooter is driven by a quiet motor, which makes it a lot more fun to ride without the annoying sound that other electric scooters make.
The 24v (2 x 12v) battery runs up to 40 minutes continuously after 12-hour full charge. Then it takes up to 6 hours to charge it up to ¾ of its whole battery. It is highly recommended to charge before you use- especially before your first use. Many people forget to do but, if you wish for the best performance out of the scooter, fully charge the battery before use.
Razor E200 might not be the trendiest scooter on the block, but it does offer three colors: Teal, Green, and Red. Moreover, to make it stand out, you could customize the deck.
